An Italian driving school offers driving lessons in an Alfa Romeo 4C

Would you take lessons in a mini supercar?

6w ago

Driving schools generally have small cars that are easy to drive and cheap to maintain. For example, in Europe, the Renault Clio, Peugeot 208, Opel (Vauxhall) Corsa, Toyota Yaris, Volkswagen Polo, Kia Rio and Hyundai i20 are the vehicles most frequently used during driving lessons.

To attract customers, however, some establishments make an exception to the rule and invite more exotic vehicles for driving lessons. This is the case of a driving school in Italy that offers to follow the lessons at the wheel of a remarkable Alfa Romeo 4C!

Learning to drive the Italian mini supercar is a very attractive option. However, you will have to deal with a vehicle initially designed for those who already know how to drive very well. Indeed, the 4C is not the friendliest car to start driving.

The vehicle is particularly wide and suffers from significant blind spots that obstruct rear visibility. On the other hand, you'll have to do without power steering. The instructor gets his own pedals, just like any driving school car. The marketing move is great, but we can't imagine the price paid for the insurance of such a vehicle dedicated to such a use.

  • I really don't get why driving schools need cars like that. A driving school in the next town has a Porsche Macan and it's just unnecessary.

  • I see a bigger problem with the Alfa, blind spots are just part of the fun. The problem is there is no clutch pedal...

  • That reminds me the TDU2 driving schools. Learning to drive in a Lancia Delta , Lotus Espirit and Ford Mustang. And most importantly the final test which requires you to complete a slalom course on a rainy mountain road with Koenigsegg CCX.

    • Those were the days, and Gran turismo license tests which put you in a Mazda Demio and a Mitsubishi 3000 GT within 2 events to each other.
